Sorry kids: Gay black dads want to be famous movie stars too

kordalekalebKordale Lewis and Kaleb Anthony just want to be your average, normal gay black fathers raising three kids. But they also want to be rich and famous movie stars, too.

Kordale and Kaleb became minor celebrities in 2014 when they posted a picture to their Instagram account of the two preparing their girls for school. While they insisted they are just like every other normal family, the two have taken every opportunity to milk the opportunity for publicity, appearing on multiple television shows and then appearing in a Nikon commercial promoting gay parenthood. It didn’t stop there, however. After releasing a book, the couple has plans to have a child together, and then make a movie. According to a report by

“Kordale and I have been planning to have a child. Our first child together,” Kaleb said. “It’s a little process called artificial insemination. We have a young lady, and she is going to do it for us.

In May 2014, Kordale released his first novel, Picture Perfect?, an honest, soul-bearing memoir that pulls back the curtain on the story behind a family picture that went viral after a Facebook post. In his book, Kordale describes his struggles with childhood sexual abuse, a drug-addicted mother, suicide and the trials of teenage fatherhood.

(In February), the couple launched a Kickstarter campaign to begin production on a film based on Picture Perfect?

Things didn’t go as planned, however, the Kickstarter was cancelled after only only $3,200 of the proposed half-a-million dollar budget was raised. The couple still continues to press on, hoping to become models (they actually posted nude photos of themselves on Instagram, although they hide the naughty bits). In a recent interview with Cosmo Magazine, they still hope to do a movie or even a reality show.

Therein lies the most disturbing aspect of all this. The couple insists they should be treated like any other heterosexual couple, yet promote their “novelty” to make themselves famous. How many families have we seen torn apart because they would do anything to be famous, like doing a cheesy reality show? Perhaps Kordale and Kaleb should think about their kids and just be normal dads living normal lives.

    They can’t have a child together. They have to steal a child from its mother or its mother and father.
    They are deliberately depriving their three children of a mother.
    They are not a normal family.
    I feel sorry for those three kids. They need and deserve a mom and a dad, and they deserve for that mom and dad to be the two people whose love created them. Tragedy happens and people die, divorce rips children’s worlds apart, but to deliberately deprive children of being raised by their own mother and father is cruel. To call it good is dishonest and selfish.
